With Villa winning yesterday, albeit to a lucky own goal, we have to start winning or we will be in serious trouble. Whatever Arsenal say about Champions league and it’s importance, it’s important for bragging rights and attracting top class players.
Ok forget the top class players as that won’t happen, but the bragging rights are still hugely important to us, the fans.
If we lose to Liverpool and Villa this week we will end the year 7 points behind Villa and 14 points behind Liverpool if results go against us, and if we don’t qualify for Europe, Cesc will go, Wenger will go and I suspect half the team will go, so Arsene work whatever magic you have, because this week we need you like we have never needed you before.
If we can get to Christmas winning and get the much needed fresh faces in, then we have a chance to salvage our season, but we need to win and we need to drop Song, if he’s in the line up the scousers will be rubbing their hands together, Arsene, please, please, please don’t play him.
The latest rumours are that we are after Arshavin and Tevez, well I don’t really want Tevez but I’d take Arshavin, he’s a proper winger, but at the price they’re asking I can’t see it, if we sign him though, expect to see him replacing Sagna.
Out of interest for the so called real fans out there, not the corporate monkeys, the real un-plastic ones and you know who you are because you are always coming on here saying if you could get tickets you would in a heart beat, well we have had two tickets for the Liverpool game available all week and had no takers, unbelievable!
That isn’t aimed at our Grovers, it’s aimed at the fans that come on accusing people of not being real fans, you know who you are, so if you want those tickets email us, they’re here and available.
The only bindipper player that worries me today is that cheating spiv Gerrard, well him and Keane, if he plays, as Keane loves to score against us. I fancy they will be defensive though and play a 5 man midfield with Kuyt alone up front and Gerrard in the hole, so we’ll have to bring our passing game. This could be the day to play Wilshere on the right, twinkle toes could dazzle Liverpool and their carthorse style of play.
I would play Diaby next to Cesc or Ramsey, a bit of steel in the middle with Nasri on the left, if we don’t play Nasri then Vela and a back four of Clichy, Gallas, Djourou and Sagna.
So my team would be
Sagna Djourou Galla Clichy
Wilshere Cesc Diaby Nasri
However this will be the Arsene Wenger line up, and I’d have money on it.
Sagna Djourou Gallas Clichy
Eboue Cesc Song/Denilson Nasri
I’m sorry to suggest a negative midfield but you just know he’ll sacrifice talent for his obsession of his two love children.
We need to win today and we need to win at Villa Park or our season in the EPL and the top 4 is over, yes I know it’s only half way and I know Villa have picked all their teams from 14 players so far and they will have injuries, but we are also suspect, he needs to buy in the window because we have 3 players that will never make the grade and are holding us back, until he admits that to himself we will never be at the races.
Come on Arsene, this season so far is a blip, get it back on track, it’s not to late and we still love you, you still have time, please give us a decent Christmas present and something nice in the January sales.
We’ll be singing loud today, it’s our annual Arsenal Christmas drink up, so we’ll be loud, and two of you can join us if you take the tickets on offer, have a great day Grovers and a successful week, go on you reeeeeds!
